Red Lips: Burberry Union Red No.17

I treated myself to a really awesome lipstick this week. I can’t wait to show this baby off on our honeymoon! Shall I wear it to a Parisian café or dinner in Venice? Oh getting so excited! Don’t red lips make you feel sexy?

Tricks For Getting The Perfect Red Lips by Burberry Makeup Artists

– Get a great lip liner similar in color. This will prevent your lipstick from spreading (aka bleeding).
-Use a lip brush to apply color
-Apply extra color to the center of your lips, it will make your lips appear fuller. This is the first place where lipstick tends to fade, so lay it on thick!
-To avoid the dreaded lipstick teeth…put your index finger in your mouth and gently close your lips around it, then pull your finger out. Any extra lipstick will come off on your finger. Keep those pearly whites bright!
-POWDER! Carefully apply facial powder just beyond your lip liner. This will help keep everything in place and give you lips that extra pop.

I really love it. It glides on smooth and lasts for hours. Burberry lipstick is on the pricier side but I think it’s well worth the money. They have several rich colors to choose from and each lipstick is blended with rose extract, which smells amazing!
